Finnish Journalists Tour Mau Forest

A group of journalists drawn from Finland's leading media houses yesterday made a tour of the Mau Forests Complex to view reforestation efforts by Government agencies, private individuals and community groups. The tour organised by the Finnish Embassy in Nairobi and led by Forestry Specialist Mr. Julius Kamau.

During a courtesy call on the Head of Mau Conservancy, the group was taken through the work being done by Kenya Forest Service in an effort to reclaim and reforest the dilapidated sections of the forest. They were taken round the area by Regional Commandant, Mau Brig. (Rtd) Hesborn Lwoyelo.

Other areas visited by the group courtesy of FOMAWA, were Kenana Farm, St. Joseph's Primary School, Mazingira Tree Nursery as well as a meeting with the Nessuit Ogiek Community.
